About the Video
In this song, I am going for a Joe Hisaishi (who often composes scores for Hayao Miyazaki) kind of sound. The mood is nostalgic but still a little sweet. The guitar, bass, violin, flute, vibraphone, bells and ney parts were played on a Korg M50 while the drum parts are from loops.
The teddy bears were donated to our school studio by a student a few years ago (maybe she had outgrown them). They occasionally help out by appearing as actors and models in our videos. The photos in this video were mainly shot at the school’s Creative Media Studio and English Corner as well as some other places around campus. For this video, the bears also went on an outing to Ma On Shan (in Hong Kong). As I was new to photography, using the bears as models was good because they are very patient. No matter how long I take to adjust the camera settings, they never complain.
